Entrance Awards

Entrance Awards

The Entrance Awards application for the 2020-21 school year is now available.

Entrance Awards are grouped into two distinct categories of Scholarships and Bursaries.

Entrance scholarships are competitive and are awarded to students who exhibit sound academic achievement, community involvement, good character and who otherwise meet the criteria and terms of the scholarship. Recipients are chosen based on the scholarship criteria and independently of financial need.

Entrance bursaries are needs-based and are awarded to students with demonstrated financial need who exhibit sound scholastic achievement, good character, who have shown a great interest in participating in the Luther College High School community and who otherwise meet the criteria and terms of the bursary.

Financial Assistance is separate from our Entrance Awards. However, families who are applying for an entrance bursary must also complete the Financial Assistance application.  Please note that all financial and application information is kept strictly confidential. The Financial Assessment Application fee is $50. While all families can apply for Financial Assistance, it is a requirement for those applying for an entrance bursary.

Entrance Award Application Requirements:

  • The application deadline for both the Entrance Awards application and the Financial Assistance application is March 1, 2020.
  • Entrance Awards are for new students applying to Luther College High School.
  • To be eligible for an Entrance Award, students must be permanent Saskatchewan residents.
  • Successful applicants will be notified in May of each year.
  • Please note that an application is not considered complete until we receive all requested documents.
  • We encourage all families who are applying for Entrance Awards to consider volunteering at Luther College as a way of giving back to the community. Please consider filling out our Parent Volunteer Form
